Producer of reliable measurement
and control technology

Martens Elektronik is a company with over 20 years of experience in the manufacture of devices for measurement and control technology. The product portfolio includes isolating amplifiers, measuring transducers, sensors as well as switching and monitoring devices. Customers are primarily companies from the areas of measurement and control technology, automation, process technology and mechanical engineering. The company is based in Barsbüttel near Hamburg and employed around 45 people in 2008.

With the acquisition of Martens and its integration into the GHM Messtechnik Group, BPE successfully implemented the strategy within a year of forming an international group in the measurement and control technology industry.

The newly formed group has its headquarters in Regenstauf near Regensburg and further branches in Remscheid and Barsbüttel; the management of the group was taken over by a Buy-in Manager, known to BPE for many years. All 3 companies in the group were originally family-run businesses that solved their succession problem via MBI/MBO. The group is now striving for further organic and inorganic growth through new product developments and a strengthening of its international focus.
